One of my granddaughters had admired my BoHo bag and I decided to make her one for her graduation in the spring of 2016. Her favorite color at that time was purple and I wanted it to be fancy but still practical for someone her age.
Second mistake was my choice of materials...I wanted it to be opulent. I had my heart set on several velvets and satin for the lining... right? Slip and slide all the way and in addition I chose very heavy structural lace. So bulk at the seams was a problem all the way also. It all was so dark that it was hard to photograph.
This is the pocket on the backside. The lace shows up better in this shot.
But it was pretty spectacular when finished...most definitely one of a kind. I might make this bag pattern again but I would take it to a leather shop and have a leather handle made and sewn on there.
This will adapt itself very nicely to BoHo crazy quilting... The bag itself will be black and embellished in color... I have tons of wonderful black stuff left from the suffragette quilt and I hope to make a dent in that stash.
Also I'm hoping I remember the lessons from the previous bag.
